the white house warned syria against using its chemical weapons, nato allies issued a similar message today saying that such action would not only be completely unacceptable but a clear breach of international law. hours ago white house press secretary jay carney says he thinks syria's leaders have gotten the messages. >> it's hard for me to imagine that they are not fully aware of the seriousness of the president's position on this, the seriousness with which we would take the prospect of the use of chemical weapons. >> shepard: u.s. officials say they have recently spotted the syrian military moving around chemical weapons components. syria is believed to have enormous stockpiles of chemical weapons, gases that can kill people by raising blisters on their lungs or shutting down their nervous systems. as bashar assad's regime gross desperate the chances of him unleashing those weapons are growing. the fighting that began last year in syria has killed at least 40,000 people. if president assad gives the go ahead for the chemical weapons attacks it's hard to predict how many more would dyed.

on this base, which is located in an area that nato recently turned over to afghan forces for security. how could this affect security, do you think, moving forward? >> well, it's handover security that everyone's looking at. the strategy is we build up the afghan army and the afghan takes over combat duties and that allows all the nato troops and british troops and american troops to go home. this attack shows that despite nato saying they reversed the momentum, the taliban is still more than capable of attacking these big bases, launching well-coordinated, ambitious attacks like this. does this mean that the strategy will change? i don't think so. this hand over of security duties has been going on for two years now. it's really the main focus of everything being done here. coalition doesn't have a plan "" "b." what this attack shows is after things are handed over, they're going to be handed over to afghan forces who have to continue to fight. certainly after we go home, the afghans will look like they'll still have to fight a lot . >> ben farmer in afghanistan. thank you. >>> just seven
civilians and three members of the afghan special forces. according to nato here in afghanistan, they say the taliban were not able to breach the perimeter of the base and no u.s. service members were killed in today's attack. in fact, they see the attack as a success for the afghan security forces, because they were in the lead and helped defeat the taliban. as a success for the afghan surt forces because they were in the lead and helped defeat the taliban. 2013 is going to be all about that, because nato wants to hand over all of afghanistan security into afghan-led hands, giving nato at least a year to sit in the background and wait for the afghans to ask for help and monitor their progress, because at the end of 2014, that's the end of the nato combat mission here and when most of the allied troops, including the u.s. troops, will be heading home. craig? >> for us in kabul on this sunday. thanks much to you. >>> the continuous debate over guantanamo and detainees resurfaced this week. ari melber has details on that as we go behind the story. good sunday to you, sir. >> thanks, craig.
along that border and at this point nato is expected to make some moves to approve patriot missile batteries along that border. what do you know about what's going to hahn and the implication? >> we don't know what's going to happen and a lot of this depends on how syria and others react in the region. it's important to remember that we have a treaty alliance with turkey. they are a member of nato. it's not just europe and canada, but turkey is a long-standing member of nato. and turkey/syrian relationings have gone down over time. you can imagine a situation where the assad government picks a fight to widen the conflict. i don't know why they would do that but maybe they've come up with a theory that gives them a better shot at survival. maybe there's an intervention that freezes the regime in its current state. but dying regime with their back against the wall, those are unpredictable and dangerous regimes. i think all options are possible. i don't mean options on the table, but i mean there are a lot of different scene ae aeros could go baedly. it's more dangerous than the irani
